You receive the following message:

You've exceeded the maximum number of activations for this serial number


Too many activations for one serial number


Activation required! Days remaining: <N>


You exceeded the limit of available activations/seats for your Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office subscription. For example, you have an Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office 1 computer license and attempt to install or activate the product on more than 1 machine. If you want to use Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office on more machines than your license allows, you will need to purchase additional seats and activate the new copies.

Other possible causes:

  • You reinstalled or upgraded the operating system on the machine where Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office is installed.
  • You upgraded the machine with new hardware.
  • You replaced your machine with a new one.

If you have reinstalled or upgraded your operating system or hardware, or simply moved the product to a different machine, reactivate Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office in the new environment.
